Meanwhile, 200 experts from 24 countries and dozens of states, including Florida, are in the nation's capitol, planning for what they are calling 'Black Sky' events: Catastrophic occurrences caused by man or nature that bring society to its knees. The cost of preventing a devastating blow is likely to show up on your electric bill.

Good morning all, we've made it to another Friday.  They just keep rolling on. This one is pretty special for my wife however, she's leaving today to fly back to NJ and spend a week with her dad. We lost her mom  way too young and her and her dad are really looking forward to getting together for a bit.  So it's a happy morning here.

Mornin' all, welcome to a new day.

Yesterday afternoon looked a lot like so many that have come before. Down and sloppy for most of the day, with a push towards the flat line in the final hour

It Is Different.

 

Every Monday, I reach out to my readers and ask them how their weekend was, and a little bit about what mine was like. In “general” terms, the wife and I use Sunday afternoons to take a 5 mile bike ride to the beach, pick a place to lay our towels and do some sunning and splashing in the gulf.  Then we walk back to the bikes, ride back to the truck and go home. It makes for a great day of sun and fun.

Morning all, we've made it to hump day. 

So, what the heck was yesterday? We came out of the box strong, then calmed down and spent most of the day just slightly tilted to the green. Then in the last hour, instead of them pushing the gas pedal, we started falling more. We actually ended the day slightly red, snapping the DOW's 10 day winning streak.  Some think it was strong words out of Trump, who said basically if North Korea doesn't stop with the Threats to the US, "They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen."

Good morning all, welcome to a new day.   Not only a new day, but a new month. Can any of you really belive it's August already? My my how time is flying.

Yesterday got odd in a handful of ways. We took a butt kicking here on the Coast after an "every day " low pressure system, flipped into a tropical storm and attacked us.  Trees are down, local streets flooded, etc. Sheesh!  In market land, After a quick bolt out of the gate, we faded back on the S&P and NASDAQ both closing red. The DOW however continued to power up, gaining another 60 points.

Hello everyone, welcome back from your Holiday. Frankly today's got me a bit goofed up, as yesterday felt like a Sunday to me, and today happens to be Wednesday instead of Monday. 

Oh well, we'll get it worked out.

Russian Roulette
 
Several years ago, I was privy to see some fairly high level documents that suggested a “change” in our nuclear war capacity. For decades, the idea was that there would always be “détente” and thus no large scale nuclear war. Détente is the simple idea that if I have nukes and you have nukes, we’d mutually destroy each other and thus the best war would be no war. There’s no winners.

But the warmongers and spinner heads at the think tanks, began to change their tune about 6 years ago. I mentioned this a few times over the years, but most of the reaction was the typical eye rolls and “oh boy, Bob’s going off the deep end again”.  See, the new thinking is that if we put enough anti-missiles on Russia’s borders, we could actually launch a nuclear strike, and then shoot down their response missiles before they got anywhere.

Happy Easter

 

If there was ever a time when we needed to step back, take a breath and think about the things that matter most…this is it.  Each day I approach the computer with a bit of apprehension…is this the day I flip on a monitor and see a mushroom cloud somewhere? 

 

That’s the kind of trepidation that should NOT be part of life in 2017. For all our advancements, for all our technological superiority, we humans still tend to be savages at heart. Wars, killings, beheadings, rapes, murders, etc.  One may have thought we’d outgrown all that. But no…it’s front and center every day in every paper USA.

Hello all, welcome to Tuesday.  

I almost welcome random days of the week now. Every day that I get up and there's no reports of mushroom clouds anywhere on the globe, I figure we're off to a good start.
